What do mean exactly 'only one driver'?
The Adaptec 1480 is a CARDBUS not a PCMCIA card. It is 32 bit. When you
apply the patch from Ryuichi Oikawa then the PCI probing should give the
information further to the cb_enabler I think.
I had the same behaviour when NOT applying this patch. Then I got also
cardmgr: unsupported card in socket 0
kernel: cs: cb_alloc(bus 1): vendor 0xffff, device 0xffff
kernel: cs: no valid ROM images found!
When you look into config from /etc/pcmcia you'll see the device:
class "scsi" module "cb_enabler", "apa1480_cb"
Here the driver is integrated after the cb_enabler which is responsible
for correct notifying the CardBus Card.
I don't have experiences with scsi, but as soon as the PCI probing
works, the cardmgr should be able to tell you at least what card you
